Growing Bamboo In Water

Growing bamboo in water is an interesting work and can bring you a lot of fun. Usually called lucky bamboo, this plant has the meaning of good luck and happiness. It can be a good plant on your desk when you are studying or working. Although it needs very little maintenance to survive, it is not easy for them to be established successfully. Compared with other household plants, lucky bamboo can live longer if a suitable environment is provided.

Before put your plants into the container, you should do a thorough wash for the container to remove bacteria and dirt. Then put some water to the container as the growth environment. The usually amount of water used for cultivating lucky bamboo is about 1 to 2 inches. Too much water will cause the over-growth of its roots which will make look ugly.

Before putting the plant into the water, you should do a simple test for the water to ensure it is suitable for the growth of the bamboo plants. Some harmful chemicals such as chlorine will affect the growth of the plant. Sometimes, filtered water will be a better option than the normal tap water.

Once the bamboo plant is put into the water, you should change water regularly to prevent the appearance of algae. Any objects in the water to support the bamboo plants should be cleaned regularly as well. You should put your plant in a partial shade area instead of the full sunlight. The best temperature for the bamboo growth is between 15 and 25 degrees.

For the health of your plant, you should do some pruning work from time to time to make it look better. Avoid over-pruning the plants otherwise it will be killed. You need to keep an eye on the health status of the bamboo plant to make sure it is healthy. Yellow leaves or stems mean too much sunlight. You can also see the appearance of algae on the rocks as well.
